Venue History​

It was between 1738 and 1773 that the conservatory at Painshill was built by Hon Charles Hamilton – an artist who adored dedicating himself to creating the perfect garden. Over the years, Hamilton extended the grounds to over 250 acres – these acres were then divided into two. In 1773 Hamilton ran out of money, forcing him to sell his estate.

After being sold, Painshill was then owned by a number of private owners until WWII, when the house and parkland were sold individually. Today Painshill is owned by Elmbridge Borough Council and managed by the Painshill Park Trust.
